The Arizona Cardinals are 6th against fantasy running backs and QB Cam Newton is trending in the wrong direction of questionable this week. McCaffrey should still maintain RB1 value.The Bucs are second against fantasy running backs, but Barkley is a matchup-proof RB1.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
McCaffrey has played every snaps for the Panthers offense this season. He would have had another big performance in Week 2 if his QB found him wide open in the flat instead of continuing to look downfield. Given the workload, he remains a top option every week.The Giants offensive line came to play last week and the QB switch may bring a spark to this offense. Either way, Saquon is the best RB in football and will be a top option every week.
